There are a lot of Fourth of July celebrations happening in southwest Oklahoma this weekend. Lawton will host its two-day Freedom Festival on Friday and Saturday with various events and activities during the day and will culminate with a big fireworks show at Elmer Thomas Park Saturday evening.

And on Tuesday, July 4, Apache Casino Hotel will host its annual Heroes of America Fireworks Show. With both of those events happening back-to-back, it only makes sense that Medicine Park would do something completely different and fun.

The Carts Rockin America Parade will take place Sunday, July 2 in Medicine Park. The parade is scheduled to start at 2 p.m. Sunday and will make its way through Medicine Park. The golf carts are encouraged to be decorated as patriotic rock bands.

Oklahoma's Best 4th of July Celebrations

There's nothing like celebrating America's independence in the heartland, and Oklahoma practically overflows with patriotism across the state. While most towns have their own celebrations, some are larger than others. Since it would be hard to catch all of them in one day, they're spread out a bit over two and a half weeks, pick one or more and let your American flag fly.
